Accidents always seem to happen when you least expect it. Certainly, nobody wakes up in the morning thinking they are going to break their hip, be in a car wreck, or twist their knee playing basketball. Orthopedic surgeons see a lot of trauma, and we at Arkansas Bone and Joint are very comfortable taking care of these injuries. Sometimes these patients are seen in the emergency room, but often they are seen later in our clinic. Correct diagnosis with appropriate studies and prompt treatment can often be the difference in having a good versus poor outcome. We take care of most traumatic injuries involving broken bones and torn ligaments. These injuries can sometimes be life-changing events. Our goal is to treat your injury as indicated so that you may resume your prior activity level.

We treat multiple disorders of the knee including sports injuries, arthritis, inflammatory conditions and fractures. Our physicians also treat a variety of sports knee injuries using non-operative modalities and operative techniques when necessary.

Total Hand & Upper Extremity
Injuries to the upper extremity are very common, and we see them every day in our clinics at Arkansas Bone and Joint. These injuries can occur as the result of a fall or acute injury, but often they present as a chronic, overuse injury.
Total Foot & Ankle Care
Various problems can occur with the foot and ankle, and such problems can really hamper mobility. Degenerative tendon issues, arthritis, nerve entrapment, or deformities such as bunions and hammertoes can limit the ability to walk, exercise, or even wear shoes comfortably.
Total Sports Medicine
Sports are definitely a big part of our life here in Central Arkansas. Whether we’re playing or watching, we all enjoy the competition and excitement. However, sports-related injuries often occur and can rob athletes of the sport they enjoy.
